Ha ha just played this at a BarBQ last weekend, I thought they just jokingly called it cornhole!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: Renting is no excuse for lame decor! on: July 12, 2010 12:12:16 PM

I'm moving from a huge ugly house into a Crapartment, fortunately it's not such bad decor. The reason I think most folks don't want to do a lot of work to a rental is because they don't want to put money into something they don't own. I hope she recognizes your hard work with a discount!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Mom made Fondant Cake-and I helped. By yelling. on: June 06, 2010 04:01:46 PM
My mom watches home and garden and cooking shows non stop. Loves the cake making ones, and has decided to try her hand at fondant cakes. Decided to make one for her friend's 60th birthday which we finished the night before she (Mom) drove halfway across the country.

My mother did all the actual baking, kneading, rolling and icing I cut out all the fondant shapes and told her where to put them-she was starting to get "creative" and wanting to "experiement" when I kindly informed her (more than once, with feeling) that the 9th hour was NOT a good time to mess with things, just get it done.

Fondant is marshmallow, cake is chocolate with buttercream icing and a cherry glaze/syrup thing in layers. Marshmallow fondant is delicious! I hate marzipan, so it was kind of a revelation for me that fondant tastes good.

Neither one of us is particularly artistic, and we have no real cake making supplies BTW-I know it pales in comparison to some others on here. My mom is not super internet friendly so I thought I'd share her acheivement!



(So annoying...I can't even post the thummbnails? Argh)

Ok, so while browsing etsy I stumbled across people selling lots of MAC makeup and knockoffs so I reported it, they violate etsy terms. Not handmade, not vintage, not supplies.

So I go back over a week later and the listings are STILL THERE.


Am I allowed to post the link? If you search MAC under bath and beauty they're in there.  (I had originally been looking at these wooden vanity makeup holders)

Hey, just stumbled on this and I'd like to add

If you go to a postal outlet in say Shopper's drug mart their package postage is going to be different than an actual Canada post outlet. It's going to be more, as they are allowed to charge essentially what they want to for parcels. Letter mail is of course the same but different "representatives" have different pricing. Some an arm, some a leg. LOL

I love this! The front part with the image of the woman is very Annie Taintor (whom I adore)
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tote/Gym Bag (ie Weekender/Lululemon knock off) on: August 30, 2009 07:00:21 PM
I want this. I covet a lululemon gym bag now that I'm actually working out, instead of my cloth superstore one. Since I have no skillz I will just look at your craftporn and sigh instead

It does look WAY lighter in there. And so much cleaner. It was actually reasonably clean before except for those awful blinds, but the old paint and tiles made it look so dingy.

Funny you should say that - I would have liked sliding glass doors. Maybe I'll get some sometime down the road when I replace the tub. Meanwhile I just lived with it and made a shower curtain. Not only does it add to the look of the bathroom, but it was actually necessary. There's some sort of backdraft in the bathroom that, if I only have the liner up, causes it to blow in towards me while I'm showering. Then it sticks to my wet skin. I used to spend my entire shower time fighting off the liner. Now, with the heavier fabric curtain up, the draft is seemingly screened out and it's not a problem.

You can buy liners with magnets on the bottom that seem to stick to the tub. Also the newer style shower curtain rods are now curved outward and it gives you a bit more room. I had glass shower doors in my old rental house I hated them-the track gets mucky and is hard to keep clean (if you're lazy like me) and they get soap scummy no matter what you use.
